      So what you're saying is you need other people's recognition to truly live? And what if you give 0 Fs and just have alot of fun and enjoy life.

      Actually, it says you would never be RECOGNIZED for what you did. That doesn't mean no one knows.

      @Fus-Ro-Dah recognized is being used as a verb therefore it means acknowledge the existence of something, in short: to be known. Sorry to bust your bubble.

      You'd leave a mark on this world by accomplishing something wonderful, whether or not people actually remembered your name. I can't wrap my mind around this.

    This one is a trick question. Your name is known for doing something terrible, but that doesnt mean you actually did something bad. For instance, say your name is Adolf but your last name isnt Hitler. Your NAME is known as someone who did something terrible, but you didnt actually do it.

    My philosophy dates back to 7th grade language class, we had to share a book quote and I shared one along the lines of "One man doesn't know if he is normal or different because he doesn't know what other are like inside," or something like that. I had to explain why I chose it and I said it was because I had always had this odd fear that my life would be so boring that if it were a book no one would read it. My teacher said that that was deep and I should write an autobiography some day. I want to be remembered for something. If its bad, well it was my goal.
